Biergarten question & entertainment

I read on one of the reviews that they did the chicken dance. Does anyone know how often this is or when or if i can request this while im there? My kids love the chicken dance and would have a ball here. I was also watching some youtube videos and it looks like great fun. I may change one of my other ressies now

we were there on the 7th for lunch and they didn't do the chicken dance, unless I missed it, but the band did play and it was a lot of fun watching them. Plus lots of kids and adults got up to dance

They did it in March while we were there for dinner. They didnt do the bells though, are those usually done often?
Hopefully they will do it again in September, DD loves that dance.

The last time we were there we kind of has the same time issue. We caught the end of the show as we were sitting.

Just take your time and eat, then watch the whole show at the end.

Or eat fast and have a second litre of bier, you'll see the next show and really enjoy it.

You may want to arrive ten or fifteen minutes early. That will allow the CM more time to take your ADR under consideration.

It looks to me that they set up the eating times 10 mins earlier than the entertainment so you can see the shows. We have a 5:45 but i see the show starts at 4:55 giving ten minutes to settle down. I would definitely get there the 15 minutes early like the CM suggest on the phone.
